"If you want a beach front, ocean front get-away, look no further! My family of 5 adults loved staying here! The beds were comfortable, kitchen had everything we needed, plenty of room to spread out, pool was great, owners are top notch!! Easy first floor unit, laundry upstairs- bring quarters. The very best thing about staying here are THE VIEWS! The location can't be beat! Honestly, I can't believe how affordable this condo is, being right on the beach! We'll be back!"

"My husband and I were here for a week and had a fantastic experience. The location was perfect. Close to Publix and great restaurants a short drive away. Took a trip into Anna Maria Island and Sarasota during our stay and had great meals at the restaurants we visited but we were quite content to hang out and have dinner at our studio. Really liked Owens Fish Camp in Sarasota that was recommended by a bartender in a nice bar/restaurant in St. Armand's Circle. The Dry Dock had a beautiful view and excellent seafood. The highlight of our vacation was relaxing after dinner to watch the majestic sunsets. Great place to stay for couples for a romantic getaway or a family with small children. So convenient to walking out on the white sand and putting up an umbrella and chairs without trekking over dunes and walkways. We definitely plan to return. We were fortunate to meet the owner which made our stay there even more special. Very clean grounds and polite staff. Highly recommend staying here and hope we have friends join us next year at the Diplomat. Of course, would recommend couples and extended families inquire about other well-appointed units. We want ours all to ourselves!"

"First of all I would recommend this to a friend, we enjoyed our 30 day stay here. The condo is nice and the experience was glitch free; no problems and a very cooperative owner.
Read the review of 'Bob and Nancy'; I can vouch for all the positives mentioned.
Walk to the bay with your morning coffee to watch the sun rise over Sarasota, and your evening tea to see the colors of the sunset. Great swimming pool and pool area. Even an exercise room and informal library / meeting room. While a small convenience store & good restaurant are virtually next door, you need transport for public beach access (limited parking), St. Armands (traffic & parking from hell) or Publix.
In short, a very nice accommodation, in a convenient area, with a great climate. You'll enjoy your stay."

"While visiting family on Longboat Key, we stayed at this charming house with all the amenities of home. We enjoyed our morning coffee out on the deck and watched the local people go off to work! Walking across the street to Mar Vista Restaurant was also fun. We will definitely be staying here again."
